Restaurant stops serving halal meat in ‘stand against UK becoming Sharia state’

A tapas restaurant has outraged some customers by announcing it will no longer stock halal meat.

El Molino in Hedon stated on its Facebook page halal meat will no longer be served because “before long no one will have any choice and we’ll be living in a Sharia state”.

Some customers have been outraged by the stance, which they say is effectively telling Muslims they are not welcome at the restaurant.

Owner of the restaurant Ben Fisher, disagrees that it is barring Muslims and says the decision was based on customers asking about the origin of the meat.
